The Last Of Us Pushed Back To June

Move Made To Meet “Internal High Standards”

More delay news for us today, although in this case it’s not as bad as some we’ve posted in recent weeks. In a post on the Playstation Blog, Neil Druckerman of Naughty Dog has announced that The Last Of Us has had its intended release date pushed back by 5 weeks, to allow for the developers to “raises that bar even further – for ourselves, and most importantly, for you, our fans.”

The post explains that the game has ended up being the “most ambitious project to date” for the studio, with the single player experience being “the longest campaign Naughty Dog has ever made.” As a result, Druckerman has revealed that the game “deserved a few extra weeks to ensure every detail of The Last of Us was up to Naughty Dog’s internal high standards.”

So instead of its original release date of May 7th, The Last Of Us is now scheduled to hit the Playstation 3 on June 14th. While a little disappointing, it does pave the way for Naughty Dog to claim the usual summer games drought for themselves, which could ultimately work in their favour. [Playstation Blog]

I didn't think I would ever say it, but this game makes me want to own a PS3. If it gets some overwhelming reviews I might be tempted to buy a Sony console :O
